Rajnath Singh Front-Runner For UP Chief Minister? What He Said Today
Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today at parliament that reports of him relocating as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh are "unnecessary and futile speculation." Mr Singh, 65, has served earlier as Chief Minister, and is among the party's most-senior leaders from UP. The BJP has won the huge prize of India's politically most important state with the biggest result for a party since 1977, a feat accomplished by and attributed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who campaigned across the state and spent three days towards the end in his constituency of the holy city of Varanasi.
